Cops look for man who has robbed downtown Dunkin’ locations three times since Friday

Chicago police are looking for this man in connection with three armed robberies of Dunkin’ locations in the Loop and West Loop. | CPD

An armed man committed three robberies at Dunkin’ locations in the Loop and South Loop on Friday and Saturday, Chicago police say. He even targeted the South Loop location twice. Now, CPD is asking for help as they try to track him down.

The first robbery occurred at the 500 West Roosevelt Road location around 3:50 a.m. on Friday, August 19, according to police. He robbed the same store at gunpoint around 3:08 a.m. the following day, too, police said.

A few hours after the second robbery, at 10:25 a.m. Saturday, the man entered Dunkin’ at 333 South State Street. He displayed a gun and demanded the register’s contents, police said. But the 56-year-old cashier ran out the front door.

When she returned, the cash register drawers were empty, and the robber was gone.

On Monday afternoon, Area Three detectives released a surveillance image of the man. He is described as being between the ages of 25 and 40, standing 5’8″ to 6-feet tall, and weighing 120 to 145 pounds.

Anyone with information about him is asked to call 312-744-8263.
